The Little Sister

Spoken-word CD - 2011
Rate this:
Fast-talking, trouble-seeking private eye Philip Marlowe is a different kind of detective: a moral man in an amoral world. California in the '40s and '50s is as beautiful as a ripe fruit and rotten to the core, and Marlowe must struggle to retain his integrity amidst the corruption he encounters daily. In The Little Sister, Orfamay Quest - small, neat and prissy-looking - has come all the way from Manhattan, Kansas, to find her missing brother Orrin. Or leastways, that's what she tells Philip Marlowe, offering him a measly twenty bucks for the privilege. Marlowe's feeling charitable - and that's mistake number one. Orrin's trail leads to luscious movie starlets, uppity gangsters, suspicious cops and corpses with ice picks jammed in their necks. When trouble comes calling, sometimes it's best to pretend to be out.
